WXPN Welcomes


Like pausing a VHS tape, music freezes the frenetic motion of daily existence. Even if just for an instant, it calms the feedback loop of routine, engages respite, and provides perspective.Siphoning guitar transmissions and a dynamic vocal push-and-pull through a lens of cinematic production, Lo Moon deftly balance expansive soundscapes and eloquent songcraft. The Los Angeles based quartet—Matt Lowell, Crisanta Baker, Sam Stewart and Sterling Laws -ultimately use music to make sense of each day on their sophomore offering, A Modern Life [Strngr Recordings/Thirty Tigers].
“It’s about survival’’ observes Matt. “Navigating through all that’s thrown at us. Maintaining who we are and where we want to be. Music itself has been so powerful for us in our own survival, it can change everything in an instant. As a band, we’ve got a lot of reverence for it and strive for it. We don’t take it for granted.”


After flash-driving a booking agency’s venue roster and creating a fake agent over email, northern Minnesota alt-rock outfit Social Animals toured for 300 days a year on self booked runs before eventually finding their voice and inking a deal with Rise Records for their self-titled debut record, set for release in June. After a 2020 European tour was cut short (you know why), the band bounced back with their recent single ‘Adults’ charting at #10 on Amazon Music’s Top 100 Alternative songs of 2021. The anthemic new single is the band’s latest offering since their string of critically acclaimed tracks last year – “Bad Things,” “Best Years,” and “Get Over It” – released via a limited edition 7” to widespread praise from Billboard, Flaunt, American Songwriter, Sirius XM’s Alt Nation, The Current, Triple J, Clash, Dork, Upset, and more.
